A new report looked at housing data in 45 American cities to figure out where the largest homes in the country are.

Texas, Southern cities, and other wealthy metropolises dominated the top spots.

The recently published report by LendingTree calculated median home sizes for single-family homes - along with the median home value and cost per square foot - in the 45 largest cities in the US.

In 2017, the median size of a newly-built American single-family home was 2,426 square feet, according to US Census Bureau data. But as LendingTree noted, the average size of all houses is smaller due to a typical home age of 37 years.

Here are the 15 cities with the largest homes in the country, ranked in ascending order.
